ATC swap! thread - sign up here

This is a branch off of the artist trading cards thread

If you have questions about what to do and what this is about, please see the thread posted above.

This is a SIGN UP for our first round of swaps!  DUE MAY 10 in my HOT LITTLE HANDS

The themes are (you can pick 1 or more)

--People
--Animals
--Surprise (anything you want to make - it will be a surprise)

For each theme you want to do, you will send 3 cards and get 3 back. Hopefully there will be enough so I can swap you within theme but, if not, then you'll get a mix.

Cards need to be 2.5x3.5 inches. You can use any medium you wish. Please avoid heavy embellishments/thick cards (like 1/4 inch, not like cardstock). Please send stuff you are proud of. Most of us are not "artist" but the fun of doing ATCs is that we can share our unique artistic ways of doing things. Cards that are not to size will be returned to you.

Let us know in the thread which themes you are gonna make and send for. I set the due date in a little over a month.

ON THE BACK

On the back, please label the card with your name, user name (vegweb or ATCs or both), and the name of your card if you have one. You can also label it "vegweb swap" and the date so people can remember where the card was from.

If you have an account on atcsforall, let me know and i'll give you itrader feedback since you mailed to me.

MAILING
Once ready, MESSAGE ME for my address and send me your cards (see other thread for links).

Everyone: please send a LABEL with your address on it. I'll supply envelopes

US: please send postage equal to the cost to mail your envelop. 3 cards are 1 stamp, more cards might cost more. If you feel lazy or want to help with international postage, you can send me a $1 to cover your postage.

International: if you are outside the US, I'll pay to ship your stuff back.

Shortly after the deadline, I will swap around the cards and mail out the packages to people.

Quickie Reminders

-Everyone is welcome to play! Even if your work is "stick figures", if you put time and care into your work that's fine!
-If you have questions, check out the link above or send me a PM.

So who wants to play? I'll update this list as people sign up. i'm going to do a general list, no theme lists. but theme away!

I've done 4 already, so I might end up doing 6 too.  Or just keeping one card for a future exchange.

but really don't worry... Part of what inspired me to join this swap was the need to get out of a serious creative slump, so I'm questioning my own skills as well. But whatever, this is going to be fun!!

Yay Minke!
I was going to do these this week. Now it's Friday. I don't know what happened.

I finally started. I'm realizing that I am EXTREMELY lacking in this department of art skills.

I have my ideas, but only have one card drawn.  I have limited art skillz.  It don't mean nothing, man.  It's about the process.

I may have to back out of this.  I haven't managed to get card or paint/crayons/whatever and now my car is fecked I won't be able to get them this weekend either.  Then I have the pleasure of having N's parents staying with us for a month from next week, so doubt I'll have time then.

This is supposed to be fun, so I completely understand it would be not fun with car problems and essentially an in-law visit.  However, you still have to send me your address because I designed one card just for you.  I'll have to think up another trade idea.  Thanks, shell.

OMG, HH!!  Way to go at guilt tripping me to do this.  I'll make time just for you. ; )

I'd love to guilt trip you into it.  Really though, if you're world is collapsing with time constraints, don't stress yourself.  I just want to send you the one I'm going to make anyway and send it to you Shell Express.

hey, I've still got to do some of my own stuff when the in laws are here...would be a good excuse to get away from them for an hour or so in the evenings!

Shell- During another ATC swap that I was a part of, my partner was concerned about the whole vegan thing and wasn't sure what mediums were vegan and which were not so she boiled vegetables down to make colors and painted with that. It was very creative and very cool! Worse comes to worse you could always do something like that!

I've finished one, have done most of the work on another, and need to do the detail work on a third.  Booya!

I have to see how many I already have made. I might have to make one more.
